The cake does not have oil or fat, does not have gluten, and has no eggs. Okay, it does not have anything worthwhile. Don’t make it. But, yes. If you want to eat cake guilt-free, and you want to enjoy chocolate in its most delicious form, then make this. (I have made a similar cake earlier too).
This is another version.
- 5 cups Oat Flour
- 5 cups Milk (room temp)
- 1/8 cup sugar
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 10 dates, pitted
- 1 tbspn baking powder
- 125 g Coconut cream (room temp)
- 75 g powdered sugar
- Chocolate chips (dark/milk/white)
- Preheat the oven to 180 C
- In a small microwave-safe bowl, place the dates and warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds, just to soften them.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, sugar and cocoa powder, and mix them thoroughly.
- In a blender, place the softened dates and milk, and blitz till a loose paste/liquid is formed.
- Mix the liquid into the flour mixture, and fold gently till everything is combined.
- Line a 4-inch tin with parchment and bake for 25-30 minutes, till a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- For the frosting, take room temp coconut cream, combine the powdered sugar gently, and spread the mixture between the layers and, also on the top.
- Top off the cake with chocolate chips.
- Serve chilled or after an hour or so, leaving the cake to set.
- Use any dates you can lay your hands on.
- The measurement of the ingredients make 1 cake. So, if you want another layer, repeat the process.
- Powdered brown sugar also works well.
